National Institute of Mental Health problems of Validity DSM 5
The public do not seem to know that before the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual #5 of the American Psychiatric Association was published in May 2013 the National Institute of Mental Health has decided not to fund any research that uses DSM 5 categories. NIMH finds the DSM system to be invalid for most diagnosis. Most of the criteria are vague and matches most humans in this planet.
Another problem is that pharmaceutical companies have decided to market the patient and not the doctors. There are ethical questions of whether pharmaceutical companies should be doing marketing at all. Marketing is mostly about selling a product and medical science have much different goals.
A recent book by Allen Frances MD who was the Chair for the DSM IV (previous DSM before 5) "Saving Normal: An Insider's Revolt Against Out-of-Control Psychiatric Diagnosis, DSM-5, Big Pharma, and the Medicalization of Ordinary Life" speaks clearly and at length regarding the issues brought in this video. He is quite concern because seems like the main target of the pharmaceutical companies are children. Targeting the parents who want their children to be normal. Pharmaceutical companies are targeting what Dr. Frances calls the Worried Well, this are people who are worried that they have psychiatri conditions when in fact these people are just dealing with normal conditions of life. Psychiatry and psychologist implies in their diagnosis that there is something wrong with everyone when in fact they are normal life conditions that are just problems that we have to deal with rather than something to take a medication for.
It is unfortunately because some people do need help but mental health practitioners have gotten to the point that by treating normal people, the people that do need help might fall though the cracks and not be service.
It is also unfortunate that the public is giving psychiatry and psychology a omniscience attitude. Mental Health practitioners are making all kinds of claims and no one ever question the wisdom or whether any research exist to justify their claims. Unknown to the public is the fact that most mental health practitioners are science illiterate. They do not read science and rarely if ever read scientific journals of their profession. They seem to be the most science illiterate of all the health related professions. And all they all speak about evidence based treatment, not many even know what this terms means. There seem to be no end in sight until attorneys begin to suite them for malpractice and errors and omissions.
The problem is much larger than I can speak here and I think it is the public's responsibility to becomes educated on these problems as the professions are beginning to loose credibility.

First they make drugs..then sickness which fit´s
When we are starting a business, then we do not start with finding the marcket group we want to sell the product too... We start on making a product which we intend to sell...then we start looking for the group we want to market our product too..
This is what the pig pharma is all about..
First they make the drugs ..then they find the people to push the pills on... In my opinion this is allabout makin names which fits to this or that drug.. so passion become´s obsession.. sorrow and sadness become depression and anxiety;
and so on... But you can not actually push drugs on passion ..or sorrow or sadness because these are normal feeling in ordinary human live.. But in the drug bottle of Big pharma industry it become big madness selling business.
This is what it is all about!!
The more pill you swallow ..the more money flow is in to their deep pocket´s..
Most people say we live longer to day than some century´s ago..well...mabie not nnice to say..but I think the only difference is that we are longer to take the last breath..most of us are like half life or half death..But this is my opinion..do not need to be others..
Thanks for grate film..
